US Peroxide Announces PRI-TECH™ Wastewater Iron Salt Optimization Applications

US Peroxide recently announced the integration of several technologies under the full-service PRI-TECH™,Peroxide Regenerated Iron Technology portfolio for applications in municipal wastewater. The treatment applications include using iron salts with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in a synergistic fashion to achieve cost savings and plant-wide treatment enhancements within municipal collection systems and wastewater treatment plants.

At the most basic level, PRI-TECH™ treatments may be viewed as an oxidant (hydrogen peroxide) regenerating spent iron salt (FeS) in-situ, yielding either fresh ferrous (Fe2+) or ferric (Fe3+) iron and colloidal sulfur. The regenerated iron can then be reused for subsequent downstream applications and is as effective as adding fresh iron salts without the added cost. Sulfur is removed by way of the existing solids handling process in the plant.

“Given the current economic climate, municipalities are frequently looking for cost savings technologies or improved performance from their existing chemical programs.” says Tom Walkosak, General Manager of US Peroxide. “PRI-TECH™ provides a cost effective technology capable of optimizing iron salt performance from the collection systems all the way through to various unit operations within the treatment plant.”

When combined with US Peroxide’s comprehensive full-service program management approach, chemical-specific engineered equipment systems and proven technical applications expertise, iron salt performance can be optimized, the cost to control hydrogen sulfide and phosphorus reduced, and digester performance enhanced. And since US Peroxide provides the equipment systems and manages of all aspects of the technical program as part of their full service package, there is no up-front capital required, performance is optimized and labor costs are often reduced.

The proprietary technology treatments that make up the PRI-TECH™ suite include:

PRI-SC® – Collection systems sulfide control

PRI-CEPT® – Advanced primary settling & phosphorus removal

PRI-DE™ – Bio-solids processing and digester enhancement
